Battery life in smartphones has improved greatly over time via a larger capacity or a more efficient processor. However, manufacturers also incorporated software optimizations to stretch the runtimes in these devices. The latter is something Samsung could apply in the Galaxy S25, but it could also supercharge it with the help of Galaxy AI.

In a private post on X, tipster Panda Flash (via WccfTech) speculated that Samsung's Galaxy S25 Ultra won't gain bigger cells, which translates to a similar 5,000 mAh capacity as the Galaxy S24 Ultra (review). Instead, he said the premium flagship will take advantage of a new “Battery AI” feature for a longer battery life.

It described how activating the new battery mode will allow the Galaxy S25 Ultra to squeeze another 5 to 10 percent more battery life. While this is a modest jump, a more efficient chipset could further improve the handset's battery life.

How “Battery AI” could provide a longer battery life

The source didn't detail how the battery-saving measures will work with this mode. However, it could be an upgraded version of the existing software-based battery optimizations presently utilized in Samsung's One UI 6 such as adaptive usage that limits the processor speed based on the current task.

At the same time, the name of Battery AI implies it will rely heavily on the machine learning capabilities of the chipset that powers the Galaxy S25 Ultra. With an upscale neural processing unit, it could accurately read and predict the user's usage pattern and subsequently adjust the amount of power required.

The new Battery AI is also expected to be available in the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+. However, it's unclear if these standard models will receive larger battery capacities or will be sticking with the existing figures as the Galaxy S24 duo, which already increased from their predecessors.

Although this is the first time we've heard of such a rumor, it does appear to be backed by the fact that Samsung has heavily invested in AI as seen in its Galaxy S24 series. The Galaxy S25 series won't likely be ready in January 2025, so we can expect for more information to surface along the way that will shed additional light about this feature.

Apart from better battery life, how do you think AI will improve the user experience in smartphones and tablets? Share your thoughts with us. We're interested to hear your opinion about this matter.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
